Campfire Mexican Dip with Grenadine Lime Sippers

You know one of the great things I love about summer?
It’s the season for dipping and sipping outside while enjoying some of the best weather of the year with family and friends!
And who doesn’t like a little Mexican heat for dipping, along with a cool refreshing bevvie  to cool off the palate?

I can always count on Mexican flavors as a crowd favorite whenever serving a meal or snack to my family or friends. It’s always received very well and disappears quickly!

And this easy dip made in a cast iron frying pan is perfect to serve when camping or in the backyard.
{I know that we always have our trusty cast iron frying pan with us when we camp…it’s a must!}
And this dip is not too spicy so it is great for the kids and adults alike.
However, feel free to turn up the heat by adding chopped hot peppers if sizzling heat is more your style.

1/2 cup diced fresh avocado
1. In large bowl, add cream cheese, mayo or sour cream, salsa, green onion, cheese and Tex Mex Spice.

And as everyone is digging into the tasty dip, it will be time to mix together some refreshing sippers!
These sippers are easy to create camp-side, and are a different take on the usual.

    Mmm, what a great idea for a dip – I'm pretty sure every member of our family would eat it up! And a good idea to add to a camping menu – I'd probably prepare the main portion in advance and bring it along in a tupperware to minimize the work on the campsite.
